The table below shows the values of f(n) for different values of n: n 1 2 3 4 5 6 f(n) 1 2 3 5 8 13 Which recursive function best represents the values shown in the table? f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(n) = f(n -1) f(n - 2); n > 2 f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(n) = f(n -1) + f(n - 2); n > 2 f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(n) = f(n -3) + f(n - 2); n > 2 f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(n) = f(n -3) f(n - 2); n > 2

    so for example if we are at f(3) Option b says f(n -1) + f(n - 2) f(3-1)+f(3-2) f(2)+f(1) 2 + 1=3 f(1)=1 and f(2)=2 its b :)
